Not likely, there are 2 court cases pending, one of which has the chance to void the sale of the team and give it back to local owners.

If seattle wins theirs legal cases you can bet your last dollar , "that is if" you are a betting man that it's going all the way to the Supreme Court. I'm not a betting man , but once in my life (maybe) I wish I were and could put down a bet on those two legal cases.

I can only rate the cities in which I've lived:

1. Pittsburgh
2. San Francisco
3. Seattle
4. Richmond, VA
5. Atlanta

Since I currently live in Pittsburgh and don't plan on moving again, I guess I'll never be able to make a top 10 list.

Oh, ok..here goes:

1. Pittsburgh-I had an eloquent description of my adopted hometown featuring deer and wild turkeys roaming steep cobblestone streets past onion-domed churches in neighborhoods nestled in hollows and on hilltops in a tarnished jewel of the Appalachians, but it didn't show up when I tried to post my edit. America's Most Livable City, for sure. At least among the places I've lived. Since I'm here and loving it more every day, I don't care so much about its much-needed image update, if an outdated image as a smoky industrial hellhole is what's keeping the average price for homes in the city under 100k. Never mind what the Lung Assoc. says either, they measured the air way upstream around a steel plant, and damaged the 'burgh's reputation for years more to come. Add "America's Most Underrated City" to the list of accolades. It can't remain undiscovered forever.

2. San Francisco, or my idea of it. I'd rather have lived there in the Jack London days, or at least the 1950's-70's.

3. Missoula, MT

4. I liked Boston a lot the one time I went there.

5. Same goes for New Orleans

6. NYC, of course. Tied with Chicago.

7. Savannah and Athens, GA. Two of the only good things about Atlanta, besides the food.

8. Vancouver, BC since it's only a few kilometers north of the border.

9. Washington/Baltimore, my first two big cities.

10. Richmond, VA..my unique and misunderstood hometown. I'll never live there again, but I go back all the time.

You can keep your Seattles (overrated yuppie playground) and Portland, Oregons (ditto, except with way more hippies) and especially your LAs. I've never been to Austin but I'm almost certain I'd hate it. I dated someone from there and heard all about it. The Twin Cities seem cool, but I've only passed through. I've never been to upper New England (NH, VT, ME) or eastern Canada, but I'm sure I'll love Montreal, Quebec City and Portland (the original) when I finally make it up that way. Ten years on the West Coast gave me a deep, abiding hatred for all things hip and smug. I can't help it.
